Overview

Critical Issues in Global Health is an outstanding collection of knowledge and thought— from a distinguished panel of public health experts— on the most important health issues in international health. The volume's individual contributors represent a wide range of prestigious health organizations and institutions including the World Health Organization, National Academy of
Sciences, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Public Health Association. Edited by C. Everett Koop, Clarence E. Pearson, and M. Roy Schwarz, these never-before-published essays explore what will be required to provide adequate health and medical care worldwide, especially for underdeveloped countries

"The miracles of science could and should be shared equally in the world. There is a growing chasm between those of us who are rich, powerful, and healthy and those who are poor, weak, and suffering from preventable diseases. If we are to improve health, we must concentrate on existing disparities in opportunities, resources, education, and access to health programs. Only to the extent that we can eliminate these inequities will our dreams for global health in the twenty-first century be realized."
from the foreword by Jimmy Carter
